When I got into my car, I was aiming right at you
I came to Carolina, it was hard to drive on through
I drove on up to Asheville, that ol' ridge was turning blue
But I knew that I just couldn't stop in Asheville
My heart said stop in Asheville, but I plumb ignored my heart
My car said stop in Asheville and it tore itself apart
On the phone, you told me Asheville town was sounding pretty smart
I should just forget you, and settle down in Asheville
I guess I'll go on loving you, although we are apart
And you can touch that piece of me that's deep inside your heart
But it feels like the two of us are settling for short
Of the life we'd have together here in Asheville
